Robert J. Fitton

Sept. 1, 1932 – Dec. 1, 2019

Robert J. Fitton, 87, also known as “Bob,” passed away on Dec. 1, 2019, in Alameda.

Robert was born on Sept. 1, 1932, in San Francisco to Carroll and Dorothy (Cummings) Fitton.

Bob married Barbara A. Bonino on Dec. 11, 1965, in Alameda. The couple moved to Brookings, Ore., in 1998. They lived happily until Barbara passed away in 2013. Bob returned to Alameda in 2014.

Bob was an avid reader, loved traveling, spreading knowledge and sharing stories. 

Among his many accomplishments in life were: receiving a master’s degree in political science from California State Hayward, serving as a fire inspector, establishing his own business. The two most precious things to him were being married to the love of his life, Barbara, and serving his country in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1955. He continued his service in the reserves until 1959.

Bob leaves behind cousins, nieces and nephews along with grand-nieces and grand-nephews. 

Those who knew him, knew him as a quiet, kind and a very gentle man. He will forever be missed but always in our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial contribution in Bob’s name to a U.S. veterans organization of your choice.
